I was out like a rockPosted: August 9, 2021 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
This one was heard during a conversation about how everyone slept the night before. This is a congruent conflation of “out like a light” and “slept like a rock”, both meaning to get a deep and restful sleep. “Slept like a log” is probably the most common idiom for restful sleep, but “slept like a rock” is also acceptable, as is “top” and “baby” as well.
